christ as my only hope

egg carton

I gave up a lot of things when I became a Christian... like trying to be perfect, being ashamed of my past, and worrying about the future. I gave up trying to control every*single*detail, allowing God instead to [finally] take over the driving.

Many of you have heard my story at the monthly faithbooking crops. During a period of grief and loss, I came to see Christ as my only hope. It was through my own suffering that I was drawn to Him; God became very real and personal to me. I share my story by way of scrapbooking because that's how He reached me... through photos and journaling.

I pray that He may become real to you as well, in an equally powerful and personal way - that the miracle of Christ's resurrection would become a source of light and hope for you this Easter. (Click HERE for an inspiring message entitled, "He Really Is Alive" by Dr. David Jeremiah.)

For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life. John 3:16 (AMP)
